SS SCS HCS HB 2380, 2016 (Amended Section - Proposed Language)
301.3147. 1. Any current undergraduate or alumnus member of any chapter of Theta Chi Fraternity may apply for special motor vehicle license plates for any motor vehicle such person owns, either solely or jointly, other than an apportioned motor vehicle or a commercial motor vehicle licensed in excess of twenty-four thousand pounds gross weight, after an annual contribution of at least twenty-five dollars to the Foundation Chapter of Theta Chi Fraternity, Inc. Theta Chi Fraternity, Inc., hereby authorizes the use of their official emblem to be affixed on multiyear personalized license plates as provided in this section. Any contribution to Theta Chi Fraternity, Inc., derived from this section, except reasonable administrative costs, shall be used solely for the purposes of that organization. Any undergraduate or alumnus member of Theta Chi Fraternity, Inc., may annually apply for the use of the organization's emblem.
2. Upon annual application and payment of twenty-five dollars to the Foundation Chapter of Theta Chi Fraternity, Inc., the organization shall issue to the vehicle owner, without further charge, an emblem-use authorization statement, which shall be presented by the owner to the department of revenue at the time of registration of a motor vehicle. Upon presentation of the annual statement, payment of a fifteen dollar fee in addition to the registration fee and documents which may be required by law, the department of revenue shall issue to the vehicle owner a personalized license plate which shall bear the emblem of Theta Chi Fraternity, Inc., and shall bear the words "THETA CHI FRATERNITY" in the place of the words "SHOW-ME STATE".
Such license plates shall be made with fully reflective material with a common color scheme and design, shall be clearly visible at night, and shall be aesthetically attractive, as prescribed by section 301.130. Notwithstanding the provisions of section 301.144, no additional fee shall be charged for personalization of license plates pursuant to this section.
3. A vehicle owner, who was previously issued a plate with the Theta Chi Fraternity, Inc., emblem authorized by this section but who does not provide an emblem-use authorization statement at a subsequent time of registration, shall be issued a new plate which does not bear the Theta Chi Fraternity, Inc., emblem, as otherwise provided by law. The director of revenue shall make necessary rules and regulations for the administration of this section, and shall design all necessary forms required by this section. Any rule or portion of a rule, as that term is defined in section 536.010, that is created under the authority delegated in this section shall become effective only if it complies with and is subject to all of the provisions of chapter 536 and, if applicable, section 536.028. This section and chapter 536 are nonseverable and if any of the powers vested with the general assembly pursuant to chapter 536 to review, to delay the effective date, or to disapprove and annul a rule are subsequently held unconstitutional, then the grant of rulemaking authority and any rule proposed or adopted after August 28, 2004, shall be invalid and void.
